Crisis Entertainment

The latest issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine is out just in time for Comic Con and includes Chancellor Agard's interview with Tom King about many things, but especially his plans for Heroes in Crisis:

EW: Based on the cover, it looks like Booster Gold and Harley Quinn will play a big role in Heroes in Crisis. Why did you pick those two characters?

King: They're the two stars of the book along with the Trinity. I do this comic called Mister Miracle, which I really like. The way Mister Miracle started was me going to [co-publisher] Dan DiDio and asking him, "I want to do something amazing with a character, but you have to give me some room to do some stuff, and you pick the character." He picked Mister Miracle and that's how that started. It's unoriginal, but I wanted to repeat that success. So when I came up with this Heroes in Crisis idea, I went back to Dan and said, "Can we do this again? Give me two heroes, I’m going to put them through the ringer and at the end we’re going redefine them to be central to the DCU, pillars of this universe." And the two he gave me were Booster Gold and Harley Quinn. I think they're perfect because they’re almost two sides of the same coin. They're both, like, these manic dreamers who have made huge mistakes and come back from them. They're kind of these survivors.

I'm not sure I like the idea of Tom King "redefining" Booster Gold, but "pillar of this universe" sounds nice.

You can read the rest of the interview online at EW.com or in the magazine on newstands now. Heroes in Crisis will be in comic shops everywhere on September 26.

Feed the World

Music fans are always talking about concerts they attended. Some were had-to-be-there events, like Woodstock, Altamont, or the US Festivals. And, of course, Live Aid, a concert so large, it took two continents to hold it.

Live Aid, held 33 years ago today, was a mega-concert designed by Bob Geldorf to raise money for famine relief in Ethiopia. The internationally televised event began in London's Wembley Stadium with acts by Phil Collins, Sting, U2, David Bowie, The Who, and Queen. It continued in Philadelphia's John F. Kennedy Stadium with acts by Run-DMC, Tom Petty, Madonna, Led Zeppelin, and Phil Collins (who flew across the Atlantic Ocean on the Concorde just to appear in both venues).

What music lover would want to miss that? You wouldn't have to if you were a time-traveling audiophile. In fact, you could attend this once-in-a-lifetime convert as many times as you liked.

Live Aid, July 13, 1985

Good riddance, hunger!
